Wasted Hours



Another set of photos by my lovely Robert. We took these yesterday, since I didn't have school or class. We stuck around in the suburbs. This is the neighborhood elementary school just up the street from my parents' house. This wasn't my school, but I still associate a lot of nostalgic memories to the place. It was one of the only places not directly in or around my house that my parents would let me and my friends wander to alone.

So this elementary school playground was where a lot of those nostalgic childhood/teenage, carefree hours happened for me.



Then, the summer after high school ended, this is where Robert and I spent a lot of time. I wish I had worn a better outfit! Because I like how these pictures are. But oh well, what can you do?--when you're living out of a large tote bag





Oh, and my hair isn't done all special or anything. This is basically what it looks like when I take it out of that tight little bun I usually wear. If you scroll down, you'll notice that I wear my hair like that a lot. Mostly because I am lazy and I don't like my hair in my face all that much. But then again, sometimes I do it too tight and then by the end of the day, my head hurts. And that is what happened yesterday.

  1. What at are you talking about?! I love this outfit. It´s so simple and carefree.
    Most of the time, I dress like this too. Sometimes I just don´t have the time to put on something extremely girlie or polished. But that´s what makes the outfit all the more beautiful, the fact that it´s real.
    Oh gosh; what a long comment.
    I hope all the things I wrote don´t come out wrong :)

  2. I love this outfit and I especially love the elementary school backdrop. If I could go back to my childhood schools right now, I'd feel like a big girl. I remember looking at the stairs once and thought to myself how I used to think they were so tall :p

  8. Ahh this is adorable! I love the soft colors, and then the little lace at the bottom of the dress. This was definitely the perfect setting to show off this outfit. I love neighborhood places- they definitely do bring me lots of nostalgia.

    The bow was actually something I added on. I was feeling a little creative and thought, "hmmm.." It's the belt-sash to this sweater-wrap from H&M. x

  17. I don't know what you are talking about, you shouldn't have worn a different outfit, the one you have on is great. When I lived with my parents we used to have an elementary school right down the road and I would spend a lot of summer time on the playground and in the fields around it, even when I was long out of elementary school. I love your photos, they are so sweet and reminiscent.
